Ex-Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson believes Alexandre Lacazette should not be handed a new deal by the Gunners, no matter how well he performs in the second half of the season.

The Frenchman’s contract expires in June, but Merson thinks that his former club should stick to their guns and allow the 30-year-old to leave on a free transfer:

“If Alexandre Lacazette goes and gets 10 goals before the end of the season, they can’t get lazy and just give him a new deal worth £250,000-a-week, thinking it might be his season next season. However, for me, Lacazette has had his time at Arsenal. Whatever he does between now and the end of the season, he’s had his chance at the Emirates Stadium.”

Most fans on Twitter agree with Merson’s comments on Lacazette with many feeling that the forward’s time at the Emirate has come to an end:

It should be pointed out that Lacazette is not thought to be holding out for a sizeable wage as Merson is suggesting. It is more to do with the length of the contract. Arsenal are not willing to give the player a long-term extension and that has led to a stalemate in negotiations.

With Lacazette having scored just five goals in all competitions this campaign, it does seem as though the summer is the right time to part ways.
